Outdoor Pentecost Service at Four Oaks

Pentecost Sunday was planned as a Local Arrangement at Four Oaks. We decided to use the opportunity to hold our second outdoor service. The sun shone as we set up and as more people arrived, we had to find more chairs!

It was an uplifting service of praise and testimony. To the delight of young and old, a bubble machine reminded us that the Holy Spirit lifts ‘our’ Spirits, makes us joyful and colours our lives.

As we worshipped together we were reminded that our faith and witness in our neighbourhood needs to be ‘outside our church walls’ as much as possible.
